B2SW: First Pages: Monster High by Lisi Harrison

 They prefer to call themselves RADs, but some call them monsters. So far, the "monster" community has kept a low profile in Salem, Oregon, but this year two new girls enroll at Merston High School, and the town will never be the same.
Created just fifteen days ago, Frankie Stein is psyched to trade her father's lonely formaldehyde-smelling basement lab for parties and friends. But with a student body totally freaked out by rumors of monsters stalking the halls, Frankie finds that life in the "normi" world can be rough for a chic freak like her.
She thinks she finds a friend in fellow new student Melody Carver--but can a normi be trusted with her big secret? 

Why I chose this:  I'd say that's fairly obvious.  It's set in a high school, first of all, but it's also a fun twist on the typical story, as this is a school for the children of famous monsters.  Doesn't get much more fun than that.  As long as the rest of the book lives up to the prologue, I think it's a pretty safe bet that this is going to be a fun romp.

This week, why not share some of your childhood favorites with a child?
You never know; years from now, they might be dedicating their book to you...
